Quarter 1: There are two parts to your post this week; make sure you answer both parts.
- After reading Chapter 5 in Surviving Your Dissertation: A Comprehensive Guide to Content and Process, comment on the type of study you are considering doing for your dissertation. Is this quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods?
- Next, tell us which statistics and research design courses you have taken and any areas you think may need “refreshing” before tackling data analysis/research design.
ALL OTHER QUARTERS: Post a weekly update. You may also choose to discuss your experiences with completing this stage of the process, highlighting any barriers you need help eliminating.
